We kindly suggest that you read the entire description, as with it we try to give you detailed technical and historical information to ensure the authenticity of our objects. Round Murano glass empty pockets (or tray); the design is essential but well-proportioned and elegant; pleasingly aesthetic is the effect of the two colors that artisans have managed to achieve with skill and mastery. This object was made by Murano masters using the technique of "incamiciatura," which consists of superimposing, as an initial process, on the glass mass that came out of the furnace, one or more successive layers of glass of different colors; in our object to the light blue, almost transparent glass mass, only the blue color was superimposed by immersing the white form just sketched in a crucible containing the blue molten glass. Then the Master glassmaker put the whole thing back in the furnace for a few minutes and then blew into the special barrel, helping himself with pliers and working it by the hand he gave the pot emptier the desired shape shaping also the central decoration, even adding a thread of blue glass all along the edge, this operation was done flat, therefore much more difficult to make the two colors blend, the object was made entirely by hand and without the use of molds or models, thus creating a unique piece, just like a work of art. The earliest records of this technique concern Benedetto Barbaria, who in 1815 made "glass blown in two layers of enamel.". The object was created between 1970 and 1973 in Murano (Venice-Italy). As can be seen from the engraving on the rim, the pocket blank is a limited edition item; it is No. 34 of 150 pieces made, which, being all handmade, show differences from one another. Unfortunately, we cannot decipher the name of the design that created it for the Murano company Effe Due. Since 1969 the artisan company Effe Due di Franco Fuga & C. has been producing and marketing prestigious Murano Glass of excellent quality and workmanship, according to the ancient techniques of Murano tradition. Glasses, bottles, trays, vases, lamps, chandeliers, sculptures, and more completely handcrafted and mouth-blown to satisfy a demanding and quality-conscious public. The Firm's owners like to repeat to their customers, "We like to think, and it may be so, that our illustrious fellow citizen Marco Polo gave to Kublai Khan, lord of China at the time, many objects including our Murano Glasses, which we continue to work today with the same accuracy and refinement as in the past. We like to call our style "classic-modern" for today's furniture, but also for that of ...Always. Beautiful things are timeless." This confirms to us that Murano is literally a melting pot where the skill and techniques developed by the masters over nearly 900 years are combined with contemporary artistic visions-and of course the ever-evolving public taste-to create ever new and ever more beautiful Murano glass designs.
